50 Years Ago Today:

GAME ONE (7 innings)


GAME TWO (9 innings)

John Boozer was the winner for the Demons in game one.  It was his eleventh of the season.  Don Lightner hit a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning off Chuck Symeon.

Game two went much better for the Foxes.  Fox Cities collected 14 hits and Dean Chance got the win.  Jim Montgomery went 6-for-8 in the doubleheader and drove in three runs in the second game.

The Foxes are 53-37 and in first place in the Three-I League.  Second place Sioux City is 2.5 games back.

..............................R..H E

MADISON MUSKIES 302 020 000 - 7 10 4
APPLETON FOXES..230 210 00x - 8 11 2


John Caianiello broke a 7-7 tie with an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth inning.  Troy Thomas drove in three runs for Appleton and Ken Reed got the win - his eighth - despite allowing seven runs over six innings.  But, the story in the Post-Crescent on July 28 was all about the defense:
Roy Anderson led off the eighth with a single.  After Bob Gould popped out, pinch hitter Mike Cupples slammed a sharp ground ball that was headed for center field.  However, shortstop Pete Venturini made a diving [stop] and tossed to second baseman Jerry Bertolani, who relayed to first baseman Greg Tarnow for the twin killing.
With one out in the ninth inning, Mark Howie singled  off Jeff Anderson.  After Dave White replaced Anderson, Tyler Brilinski stroked a grounder at Bertolani.  Bertolani made the grab, raced over and stepped on second and then tossed to Tarnow to end the game.
The Foxes are 64-36 and are still in first place in the Northern Division of the Midwest League.  Their lead over second place Kenosha is 14 games.
